Empire State Building: Already big, extra bright

One of New York's most iconic buildings lighting up the skyline in red, white, and blue to prepare for holiday festivities.

The Empire State Building turned Star-Spangled, Monday night, to kick off Independence Day.

The building often features festive color schemes during holidays. And, they're sometimes even synched up with music.

It'll be red, white and blue again on the Fourth, the perfect backdrop for an annual fireworks display and celebration.
